Giving Spree 2021: Celebrating Adams County's Nonprofit Organizations

September 27, 2021

The Gettysburg Foundation is pleased to participate in the Adams County Community Foundation Giving Spree on Friday, Nov. 5, 2021.

Best known as Adams County's Day of Giving, the annual Giving Spree provides the entire Adams County community the opportunity to come together to celebrate and support local nonprofits. Last year’s Giving Spree raised over $2 million for causes during a global pandemic.

The Adams County Community Foundation's role is to connect donors to groups and organizations that match their charitable intentions. The Giving Spree is just one of the ways the Adams County Community Foundation facilitates this connection. Everyone in the community is encouraged to learn about our local nonprofits and support them during the Giving Spree.

Giving Spree donors have three options for giving: 

  1. Drop off gifts at the Gettysburg Times on Nov. 5 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
  2. Mail gifts using the Donation Form to arrive by Nov. 5.
  3. Give online at on Nov. 5.

The Gettysburg Foundation encourages and invites Friends of Gettysburg and our supporters to participate by donating to the Gettysburg Foundation’s mission of education and preservation through the Giving Spree. Donors can identify the Gettysburg Foundation as the recipient of their donation by code number 43 on the Donation Form.

The Gettysburg Foundation is grateful for the opportunity to participate in the Adams County Community Foundation Giving Spree alongside 98 other participating nonprofit organizations in our community.
